Remembering the Life of an Angel

The loss of a child is a life shattering experience. Little can prepare you for the emotional trauma suffered in such circumstances or for the physical and mental pain of adjustment in the aftermath. 'Letting go' after death is often the most challenging situation you will ever face. Many people in this position find that an infant grave marker can serve as a starting point from which solace can be attained.

Types of Infant Headstones

There are several types of headstones and grave markers available for infants.

Bronze Infant Grave Markers

These are suitable for many modern day memorial park type cemeteries. Bronze grave markers consist of a bronze plaque mounted to a base made of granite or concrete and are designed to lay flat on the ground. Bronze is a rich memorial material that serves as a canvass upon which imagery is cast in relief form representing a sculptured appearance. Some models are available with a bronze vase for the placement of flowers.

Granite Infant Headstones

Granite, being one of the hardest stones in existence, makes an excellent choice for an infant grave marker as its durability is unrivaled. Granite infant headstones come in a variety of styles and different granite colors. The most popular types of granite headstones for infants are upright monuments, flat grave markers and slant granite markers.

Many cemeteries have in place rules governing the types of grave markers allowed. Before making a choice, it is best to consult with the cemetery to verify the memorial you want will meet their requirements.

Design Options

There are many design ideas to consider when creating an infant headstone. Among them there are teddy bear designs, lamb designs and the ever popular angel designs. Each design can be personalized with the addition of a name, dates and an epitaph.

Personalization

This process allows you to customize the infant grave marker to reflect the spirit of the precious child. Typically the memorial is lettered with the infant's name and dates. If the infant was a stillborn, the birth/death date is traditionally represented as a single date on the memorial.

Emblems or symbols can be selected to decorate the infant grave marker making it as unique as the child it is for. Emblems and imagery are sometimes chosen for the symbolism they represent, but in many cases a person chooses a design element because they simply like it.

The death of a child is very difficult to overcome. With an infant headstone, the bereaved often find comfort in mourning, as well as a pathway to remembrance in later years. In the meantime, may an infant grave marker or headstone provide you with an icon of stability in what is a turbulent and emotional time.
